Graphic Access Tabular Entry [ GATE ], an interception-resistant authentication and encryption system and method

GATE is interception-resistant, which means even if someone intercepts/sees you when you log in, he still won't know what your password is.

Describe who will use your solution (1,000 characters)

I'm a Sr. software developer. Three years ago I watched a PBS TV show called "Rise of the Hackers", in which it talked about the vulnerability of the Internet and said traditional password is a weak link in cyber security. That inspired me to do something about it and fix this problem, so I came up with a solution called GATE : Graphic Access Tabular Entry. GATE is an interception-resistant user authentication system, which means even if someone intercepts/sees you when you log in [ assume he sees/records every detail of your authentication ], he still won't know what your password is, there are detailed info, demo and videos on my website : https://www.gatecybertech.com GATE can use short and easy to remember passcodes to defeat peeking, keylogging, phishing and dictionary attack. The GATE system can be used for : door access, safe box, PC, mobile phone, web login, ATM, weapons system, facilities [ infrastructure ] ... The GATE system can greatly reduce stolen passwords.

Describe your solution's stage of development

  • Prototype - you have built a prototype and tested it with potential users

Size of your team or organization

  • 2-10

Funding Request

  • No funding is required

Rough Budget (500 characters)

No funding required, any organization interested can implement the GATE system.

Describe how you would pilot your idea (1000 characters)

GATE is an interception-resistant user authentication system, which means even if someone intercepts/sees you when you log in [ assume he sees/records every detail of your authentication ], he still won't know what your password is, there are detailed info, demo and videos on my website : https://www.gatecybertech.com GATE can use short and easy to remember passcodes to defeat peeking, keylogging, phishing and dictionary attack. The GATE system can be used for : door access, safe box, PC, mobile phone, web login, ATM, weapons system, facilities [ infrastructure ] ... The GATE system can greatly reduce the root cause of compromise in 66 % of cases and reduce cyber crime damage. It's approach is like hiding a needle in a haystack, so user passcodes are not exposed like the traditional passwords do.

Describe how you would measure the success of your pilot (1000 characters)

[1] How fast users can learn the GATE system [2] How easy users think it is to use

Sustainability Plan (500 characters)

Yes, it can be sustained after the pilot period ends. As more organization start to use it, the GATE system's advantage will show itself.

Hey Frank Ni , this is MaCie' one of the online facilitators here! Thank you for participating in the challenge! This is super useful, especially for individuals like myself who would frequently use the same password, or visit a multitude of different sites. How could we make a Graphic Access Tabular Entry fit within the mission of this challenge? How can we make this method work with mobility?
